I've been trying to figure out how I can overcome the struggles in my life, and it seems that every day I just keep not applying myself. I procrastinate nearly every issue and claim I don't know how to deal with them, but in many cases I've known the answers for far too long. I've tried to tell myself that I needed to have courage to face my demons. Or that I needed the help of others to accomplish my goals.
But I've finally realized that my most fatal flaw: I truly despise myself. If I harbor so much hatred for myself, there's simply no reason for me to improve. This self-hatred has led me into a cycle of falling deeper into a pit of depression, continuing to further cement into my mind that it can't be helped and that there's nothing I can do.
That's why I will no longer succumb to such self-hatred.
It's all bullshit, I do want to get better and to overcome my struggles of the past, present, and future, and I do want to love myself, so what now is stopping me. I will no longer cower and hide my true self in fear that if I stopped this horrendous act of helplessness people would think less of me. If anything, I'm the one holding myself back from the future I deserve. So I will be the one to overcome my greatest enemy, Me.
